that helps some -- got rid of most of the messages except one about
shpchp, which is not listed in my /etc/modules, so don't know the
origin. Unfortunately cna't post my bootlog b/c bootlogd doesn't seem
to wantto run! I have the following /et/default/bootlogd:
# Run bootlogd at startup ?
... but still no /var/log/boot. Not sure what that's about; I noticed
another thread from someone with a similar difficulty, no solution
posted, not sure what's going on.
anyway, that was a great start, thanks!
